Courts security must be sworn officers with legal training concerning the scope of their duties. Private security guards have no place in the court house screening process.

Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

The law is far from being immoral. Having borders to delineate sovereignty is necessary.

Those ILLEGAL immigrants are here ILLEGALLY. Should we tolerate lying, cheating, and stealing? That's immoral in my book.

Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

A lot of folks complain that undocumented workers have broken the law. Have you ever considered that slaves in the pre-Civil War South broke the law when they set foot off the plantation? Or that the Surpreme Court ruled that no black person was a citizen, North or South, and could never BE one? The law was immoral then, and it is immoral now. If we benefit from the sweat of another human being's brow, then we must repay him or her. People who pick our crops and hoe our fields and tend our children are being hunted down on our streets and cities and farms. This must stop. Undocumented workers cannot change the laws but We the PEOPLE can, and it is our responsibility as decent people to do so.

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

Jim Mzt, in this case the public is allowed. Reporters are specifically targeted for removal, even though they "obey the policies or laws that the public must obey." So what justifies removing the reporters?

Re: “Advocates Criticize Alameda Sheriff’s Cooperation with Immigration Enforcement

These protestors should follow the immigration law. If they are not legal residents they have to leave that is the law. The Sheriff Department is doing it's job correctly. UI applaud them for that.

Re: “ACLU of Northern California Asks Immigration Courts to Immediately Provide Media Access on Behalf of Express

We need to make some changes to the so called rights of the press. They should have to obey the policies or laws that the public must obey. They don't get a free pass to anything only to what that are allowed.

If police were reluctant to take action without overwhelming proof of crime, you can thank Judge Thelton Henderson for the proceduralism he imposed on the department.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

I've never seen a reporter in immigration court. Good job.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

As noted by previous poster, this headline is misleading at best. You weren't kicked out; you chose to leave.

This is a good article and you are shedding light on an important topic, but please refrain from such hyperbole.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Now I can gripe a bit by the headline and the first line of this report -- because the reporter wasn't kicked out -- the reporter's first paragraph is contradicted by "I then requested the judge to ask the man again if he'd be OK with me staying on those terms. The man seemed OK with this, but I got up and left the courtroom, anyway." (GRRRR). So this headline and article kinda stinks. Reporters - the truth is not such that the ends justifies the means. Don't trick me, especially with an outright lie.

HOWEVER, this whole "media is the enemy" thing really pisses me off! Trump tweeted about it on the same day that this article was posted -- so one didn't cause the other. But the press are our eyes and ears -- NOT OUR ENEMY. If the public can be there, the press can be there and if someone is made nervous by the press -- that's a sign.

Have you ever sat through a public court proceeding? No? Thank God, because it's dead dull boring. It's like watching paint dry. "Due process" is important but not exciting, and so it's easy for the public to bypass observing such public proceedings because we're comfortable with the assurance that someone else is likely watching and if anything urgent or outrageous happens, we'll be alerted by someone who has more time than we do.

Even though they're open to the public, most court proceedings are not even attended by reporters -- but the fact that they can attend is a check and balance to nefariousness such as shortcuts through our rights, deals that ought not be made, and other bad behavior.

Thank you, reporter, for doing OUR job. We need you. We're on your side. We really appreciate it. This weekend, I counted 5 different ways that I pay money for news. It's valuable to me and I don't get mine for free. But please don't funge up the facts. It doesn't help.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

If people support this type of investigative work, they should donate heavily to the publications that produce them. The East Bay Express produces great work, but has only ONE full-time reporter! The powers that be have a great interest in keeping their practices hidden and reporters have traditionally been the ones to put a spotlight on it. Unfortunately, investigations such as these are becoming very rare in a media climate driven by clicks, not substance. Support journalism!!

Re: “Police Did Not Arrest East Oakland Shooter Despite Two Earlier Gunfire Incidents In A Week At His Home

Is OPD sound asleep or simply so risk adverse and lazy that they investigate nothing until driven to it?

The end of this incident would be almost mind boggling except it's right in line with the total lawlessness here. The facts, as presented, are terrifying... No records of previous calls to the same address for gunfire incidents?

This isn't a police department... It's not even the keystone cops!
